Once you join, they have a website where you login and manage your choices and get your links and ads and html code or widgets to use online.
The choices and vast and you can have a widget on your site that may feature the deal of the day. If a reader clicks it and buys something from Amazon, you get credit for it.
The shopper does not have to buy what they clicked through on, they can buy anything and you will get credit.
Affiliate programs place a cookie on the users machine to tell them that you are the affiliate member who will get credit for any sales and also this cookie is good for hours.
(this can vary depending on how the user has their machine set up, if they delete cookies with each session, it will delete the cookie telling your affiliate program where they came from.)
Most people do not clear their cookies with each browser window.

1. Join any affiliate program

3. Add this to your website or email
4. Encourage people to shop using your links
